    *ignoring troll*

    However, if "enduser" listens to "expert" and "expert" states "release annoucement dull", then "enduser" is likely to adopt that. Please don`t do that. If they don`t have a mind, you might aswell say it is "exhilataring beyond belief", and the real experts who make this stuff will have a better time.

    Sometimes change is painful, but necessary.

    Officially, welcome Wayland!

    Like they made Unit... Oh wait, you can still remove it. "Crying in pain" .. xD lol
    Plus, what will we do without the tearing? They'll remove that feature too from Linux. Among many other things. :|

    Wait, isn't that Arch and Fedora? I am missing things lately, and I wanted to reinstall Arch to try all the new/unstable/unusable things more easily .. Better stay on Ubuntu you say?

    Not trying to troll and I welcome new solutions but as it stands Wayland doesn't look like its at a v1.0 state yet.

    the versioning is completely irrelevant. apt is still 0.x, even though it would be considered extremely mature.

    Of course not, the protocol just became stable TODAY. GTK, EFL, QT, and KDE can all work on Wayland support because of the "scratch your own itch" nature of OSS. Nvidia and AMD arent going to spend money on developers to make their drivers Wayland compatible when they may have to turn around and redo all of it the next day.
